It's the first time in Early Morning Enigma history that a non-musician has featured as a guest on the show! This week, we sit down with Jeff Kelley, owner and head instructor at Pullman's own Martial Arts Training Academy (MATA). MATA recently passed its one-year anniversary and continues to grow as a positive presence on the Palouse.
Kelley and George Collins talk about the philosophy behind martial arts and MATA in particular, the evolution of fighting, and Bruce Lee.
And because this is The Early Morning Enigma, we also crank some great music in the process, like post-punk in the Middle East, aggressive drum n' bass, political Taiwanese black metal, and songs about frustrations with Tonka trucks.
If you're in the Pullman/Moscow/Palouse area, check out MATA soon to begin your martial arts journey!
